Dingy Donna Karan Defends Hollywood Hog Harvey Weinstein Amid Sexual Assault Allegations

Donna Karan was interviewed on the red carpet at Ciné Fashion Film Awards, unfortunately for sexual assault victims everywhere she was asked about Harvey Weinstein. Her response was ignorant and repulsive, especially for a woman who makes her coin off of women’s fashion:

“I think we have to look at ourselves. Obviously, the treatment of women all over the world is something that has always had to be identified. Certainly in the country of Haiti where I work, in Africa, in the developing world, it’s been a hard time for women. To see it here in our own country is very difficult, but I also think how do we display ourselves? How do we present ourselves as women? What are we asking? Are we asking for it by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality? 

‘And what are we throwing out to our children today about how to dance and how to perform and what to wear? How much should they show?”

Someone did not inform Dingy Donna that a woman’s clothing does not determine if she is going to be raped or not. It’s sad that even in adulthood people don’t know how to plead the fifth. The backlash from her comments should bankrupt company if people had any morals but, that may not be so. 

Donna went on to speak highly of Weinstein and his wife, about how great of couple they are. What does being a great couple have to do with the fact that Harry is an entitled man who got away with sexual harassment in Hollywood for years? If may have softened the blow if she would’ve been honest and said that he’s her friend and she’s doesn’t believe the allegations. The worst to do is blame victims. 

This man had the power to make or break actress’s careers in exchange for sexual fa What is very sobering is that women still play a large part in misogyny, whether it is to protect themselves or lack of knowledge. To blame women for a grown man’s actions is just another indicator that we have so far to go on the eradication of patriarchy.
